Neck Injuries and Pain Relief Solutions


I go to Novena and Cheryl is my therapist. She was upfront from the get go about my neck condition. I liked her honesty and said we'll give it a try. I was better after 4 weekly sessions and continued to go to her every 2 weeks. With her help I am in a better condition, had to put in effort on the exercises she taught me as well.

Core Concepts provided me with holistic treatment post my surgery. The entire team including the front desk staff were friendly, meticulous and extremely helpful. Ms Lynne and Weijie are my Physiotherapist, Ms Carmelle is my Functional Instructor, Ms Jessie Yee is my Massage Therapist and Ms Rohini is my Pilates Instructor. They work well together to help me to treat my stiff neck and back problem post surgery.Special mention to:-1. Weijie and Lynn who came out with a treatment that helped me to regain more mobility to my neck and back. Not forgetting that they had to relief tension to my joints when they stiffen. The sheer strength put in is amazing.2. Carmelle who taught me the mobility exercises and sent me the videos of me doing the exercises with clear pointers and instructions.

I worked extensively with Sylvia, one of her colleagues, and Carmelle the physical trainer. All of them displayed the highest level of professionalism. They also successfully diagnosed the cause of my neck, shoulder, and back pain and worked patiently with me over the course of several months to get rid of it.

Cheryl is both skillful and caring.She goes into the root causes of the patient's pain problem and carefully works out a healing plan together with the patient .Her medical skills and knowledge coupled with her medical ethics are rather encouraging for me as a chronic neck pain sufferer who have received other forms of pain management treatments before.After a few sessions of treatment and doing the exercises she taught me, I am feeling better and I think I should be on the road to further recovery.Thanks Cheryl and Core Concepts.Paul

Neck Pain Causes and Conditions

Neck pain is more complicated than we think. Very often, what’s causing your pain is far deeper than what we expect. The spine is an intricate system that holds 33 bones, joints, ligaments and muscles. There is a multitude of reasons that may have caused neck pain.

A thorough assessment can determine the cause of your neck pain. The most common causes of neck pain are sleeping positions, sports or working at a desk for too long. To get a clearer understanding of your neck pain, do consult a physiotherapist.

Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Neck Pain

  1. What is causing my neck pain and how did I get it?

    There is a multitude of reasons that may have caused your neck pain. We can't determine the cause of your neck pain without a thorough assessment. The most common causes of neck pain are sleeping positions or working at a desk for too long. To get a clearer understanding of your neck pain, do consult a physiotherapist.

  2. Does my posture cause neck pain?

    Poor posture could result in neck strains such as when your head is held forward to view mobile devices. This is because your muscles are working overtime to keep your head in the forward position. As a result, your neck muscles would be more susceptible to painful strains and spasms.

  3. What treatments are available for neck pain?

    Some of the physio treatments methods for neck pain that we employ are manual therapy and strengthening exercises. Your treatment plan will be determined by your therapist after conducting a full assessment of your condition. For more severe cases, surgery may be required. We can refer you to a specialist if required.

  4. What can I do to prevent neck pain?

    One of the common causes of neck pain is bad sleeping posture. A quick and efficient solution is to get a new pillow that keeps your cervical spine in neutral alignment. It would also be advised to adopt a good posture when using mobile devices or working at a desk.

  5. When should I see a physiotherapist for neck pain?

    Seeking a physiotherapist as early as possible would allow an efficient recovery period. However, you should seek a physiotherapist immediately if you have been experiencing neck pain that is severe. Also, if your movements are limited or if the pain gets worse while performing certain activities. At Core Concepts, we are dedicated to addressing your issues and getting you back to full activity.
